Most people personally know their heroes or have at least interacted with them. Unfortunately, I haven't had the honor to do either of those. Johnathan was killed in Afghanistan the same time I was deployed to that region and we were set to go home around the same time. What I experienced in Afghanistan changed me but having the honor to bring his remains onto the plane that was taking him home left an imprint on my soul that I will never forget. His leaving brought my understanding and greater appreciation of life and being a good person and enjoying life each and every day.
